Made by Chinese
In 2011 / 2012, I have spent about a year working with a great team of people on a book about Architecture in China. After more than a year of scanning, editing, writing, the book is finally here and it looks incredible ! The 2 volumes 600 pages final result will be available for purchase in 2014.

2008 - out of stock
In 2007 / 2008, Tim Franco ( photos ) & Gianpolo Lupori ( text ) roamed around the fragile Shanghai underground music scene. The self published book was released during one of those events and the 200 copies were sold out on that same day - an ephemeral book, just as the underground music scene in Shanghai during that period.
